PreFlight is a 501c3 nonprofit, that provides a six-day camp and mentorship program for girls, ages 11-14. We use aviation to build girls’ self-esteem, empower them to reach their goals, and inspire the next generation of pilots. In the same way that a pilot must first perform a “preflight” before they can takeoff in their airplane, our camp is a young girls “preflight” into aviation.
Our hands-on approach to learning explores aviation through Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM). Campers apply their knowledge first-hand and make lifelong memories when they pilot a simulator and fly an airplane on a private flight with one of our female instructors! All of our counselors are professional female pilots who empower the campers by connecting each topic to broader life lessons and teaching them there is no limit to what they can achieve.
Seeing is believing and by placing young girls in an enriching environment, surrounded by female aviators and role models, they begin to believe that becoming a pilot is a real possibility for their lives. PreFlight Aviation Camp will not only transform beliefs about gender roles, but will inspire young girls to takeoff into their future! We can’t wait for you to takeoff with us!
